Ludlow welcomes back midfielder Rachel Rowe and defender Nadia Lawrence who have been out with injuries. Meanwhile Georgia Walters will be looking to earn her first cap after impressing this season for Tranmere Rovers.

Cymru are unbeaten in their qualifying round group after a 6-0 win over the Faroe Islands and a 2-2 draw against Northern Ireland last month. Belarus have played one game in the group so far, also beating the Faroe Islands 6-0.

The two sides last faced each other back in 2014 in Minsk. Cymru took the three points in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifying round match with Natasha Harding scoring a hat trick in a 3-0 Cymru win.
